The CFAE Casebook: A Cross Section of Corporate Aid-to-Education Programs.
Council for Financial Aid to Education, New York, NY.
Details of 1981 aid-to-education programs by U.S. companies are presented in this handbook. For each company, information is provided on the purpose of grants, techniques of providing funds to support education, the amount of total educational grants in 1981, support of colleges and universities, support of students, support of education-related organizations and associations, and other forms of support. In a few instances, the descriptive material includes information about programs designed to increase the educational attainment of company employees. Descriptions of the participating companies are arranged alphabetically, and indexes list the companies by field of business, size of educational support program, and categories of giving (e.g., general endowment, equipment assistance, faculty salaries, library support). It is noted that total company programs range in size from a few thousand dollars to several million. Some achieve diversity through emphasis on a matching-gift or through gifts to the United Negro College Fund; others channel their support directly to the institutions of their choice. Some programs are restricted to private institutions or geographic areas or academic disciplines relevant to a particular line of business. (SW)
